A picture tells a thousand words. Taufik Hidayat once again conquered top seed Lee Chong Wei. This time in the French Open 2008 Men Singles Semi Finals.
Their previous encouter was the Macau Open 2008 Finals. Taufik easily defeated Chong Wei.
Chong Wei was a man with a mission this time around. Chong Wei fought back gallantly and took the first set. While i was watching, i thought it was going to be Chong Wei in the finals as Taufik has spent more time on court compared to Taufik.
To my surprised, Taufik came out charging and started to increased the tempo of the match. Taufik was at his best and when he’s at his best, even Chong Wei also cant stop him.
Chong Wei really need to work something with his mental preparation as he seems to have a mental block whenever playing with top players especially Taufik and Lin Dan.
The next Super Series even will be the China Open Super Series. Seeded Entries for the China Open Super Series seedings can be obtained from the link.
